11/11/11 is a date that only comes around once every 100 years so unless some anti aging vaccination is invented this is the only time we will see this date in our lifetime. It is rumored to be a lucky date amongst other theories that something global may happen on this day, I personally just think it is a another day with an interesting date.
In honor of 11/11/11 there were many challenges all over Facebook and the blogosphere-run 11 miles, run 3.3 miles (11+11+11=33), run 33 minutes, add 11 reps to a routine and the list goes on and on and on. I figured it would be a great day to challenge myself so I decided I would get up early (5:15), go to the gym and run an 11K (6.83 miles) in honor of 11/11/11. I tweeted this goal and put it on Facebook that way I could not make any excuses not to follow through and guess what….I did it!!!
YAY!!!! I even managed to run it in under 60 minutes! I had to run at 9.0 mph for the last tenth of mile but I figured I’d either do it or be known as the girl who feel off the treadmill trying to run an 11K on 11/11/11. I managed not only to stay on the treadmill but by completing this goal I gained back that much needed motivation I have been lacking these last few weeks. I know if I put my mind to something I can do it because that is exactly what I did today!!!!!
Are you doing anything special in honor of 11/11/11?
